      It looks like it was rolled or in quarters so why did you use 3/32? Even if I did it in position I would have used5/32 root 1/8 to fill cap ..... But since it was a steam line I probably would have just filled it right under flush with 6010 then slicked on an 1/8 cap

        Its called Procedures and we have to follow them.

          Nice ! I like the umbrella. I stick mine in a 3 leg pipe stand, pull the head and it fits perfect. Is that how you have yours ? Kinda hard to tell. I never leave home '
          without it. Nice view in last pic. Stay safe !

Do you listen to engineers too .... I only listen to an engineer if I'm on a train
            And Drpipe strikes again with all of his arrogance and his better that all attitude.One day drpipe some of us will be as good as you think you are. Only you.
            And you wonder why they "censor" your post is beyond me.

            For the rest of us that is average.When all welds are to be x-rayed then you are given a welding procedure to follow and if you don't then they will bust you out and send you home.Maybe if I eat my vegatables and get my rest then I might be half as good as drpipe

                Well, in my neck of the woods we do the same. Normally 8'' and down all guys
                prefer 1/8'' root 6010, and cap 3/32 7018. Everybody's different but procedures
                are procedures. Sometimes it is not our choice. We are here to paint and not pick the colors.

                  Ahhh don't hate ... I just call em like I see them ... I just don't believe the procedure stated to cap with 3/32 if it was a high pressure hydrocarbon line I'm guessing they would have wanted to see a two bead cap I just think you like most welders play the game and burn your small rod I would have made that weld in 30?minutes and that includes fit up and ringing my weld

                    I honestly felt sorry for you when you were crying on your censored rant,until now I know the mods were right on target.I posted a pic from work and now you(and only you) came out saying how crappy everyone's weld is except yours and only you and your goldenarm can perform to the standerds.I do know that when this board dries up and no one will post pics or anything about welding on the forum because of wanna be's like you. Then the problem will be addressed as needed.

                      YEP !
                      Well, I guess he's a legend in his own mind. I'm surprised that he doesn't have
                      his own website or school.

                        Funny all you do in this thread is try to poke at me and get me to insult you back .... You have not once tried to answer anything I have asked or addressed anything I have pointed out ... I know I can weld...... I know that most people who have chatted with me on these boards know I can weld ... There is know doubt at all that I'm a great welder ... Fitter .... Fabricator yeah I'm coc. Ky so what ..... You can bearlly weld I doubt I would consider you a journeyman , don't feel sorry for me bub ..... I'm not going to insult you or call you names.... I had no intention of hyjacking your thread ... There great pics of a guy breaking out as a Weldor .... I am a very direct individual sorry if your feelings were hurt here in my oilfield feelings are left at the house.

                          Pepole tolerate some guys when demand is high, my patience would have worn thin at some point, probably way before the unplugging the rod oven to plug in the radio incident, then to argue about it would have been the last straw. At some point no matter how good a guy is at it the pain in the azz factor outweighs it.

                          Aint nothing like firing a guy first thing in the morning to put a little spark in the rest of the gang, this would have been a gift for that.

                            Its nice to see uphillers fued and complain as much as downhillers. Boy what I would give to work on a nice cement slab, versus the ditch I've been laying in.

                            Nice pics and thanks for sharing.

                              Paranoid unfounded fear or not one reason I never headed to pipeline work was I cant stand working in mud, dry dirt is bad enough but greasy mud especially with my own equipment is just to much of an emotional challenge to face every day.
